Beautiful composition Ian. I really like the B&W effect here. The contrast of the water and the sand and the intensity of the sky looks Great. Wonderful shot.

I like this one a lot. Great location - a slight quibble on the reflection meeting the stones, but everything else slots in perfectly, and one great sky.
